Moonstone and Sterling Silver Earrings

in: Earrings



Moonstone and Sterling Silver Earrings -  I have an immense need to have texture in my jewelry. This particular pair of earrings features reticulated Sterling Silver. This labor intensive process involves heating the silver sheet, cooling, cleaning, and repeating this process several times. Near the finish line, the fine layer of silver comes to the top and literally becomes liquid in the flame, creating nooks, crannies, valleys -- and what I refer to as craters -- in the silver sheet. After the reticulation process, I framed the "crater-laden" sheet with a sterling silver bezel, and added a 5mm Moonstone. Two Bali Beads dress the top of the frame of these "moon shadow" earrings.

Only the reticulated sterling silver has been oxidized, and polished by hand to highlight the amazing texture. These earrings are truly one-of-a-kind.

The earrings measure 1 7/8" in length from the top of my hand forged, sterling silver ear wires to the bottom of the earring. 

All metals used in this design are .925 sterling silver.

Jewelry is made using traditional metalworking techniques, including soldering, filing, sanding, texturing, polishing, and tumbling in my home studio. Jewelry comes wrapped in a cotton-lined gift box and ships quickly. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
